A young Canadian, Joseph Dupuy, built his dream home. The foundation of this most cost-effective project was... three old shipping containers, each of which Joseph purchased for only $3,400. Pictolic invites you to appreciate this wonderful house and feel all its advantages.

2. The house he built using old shipping containers can be dismantled at any time and placed in a truck for moving to any convenient place. In general, container houses are not new, but Joseph's forest-dwelling is compact and self-sufficient. (Photo: Japhet Alvarez / Via Facebook: s7vnth).

3. Do not forget that a young Canadian practically does not pay his house bills. For example, last month, he paid the largest amount for ... telephone calls. (Photo: Japhet Alvarez / Via Facebook: s7vnth).

4. The house is equipped with heating and air conditioning systems, and solar panels are installed nearby to provide it with the necessary electricity all year round. A sufficient amount of space allows you to easily place furniture and other necessary interior items in the living room. (Photo: Japhet Alvarez / Via Facebook: s7vnth).

5. The house even has a full shower. And although there is no direct water supply, a built-in replenished reservoir comes to the rescue. And you can always borrow water for him from the neighbors ;) (Photo: Japhet Alvarez / Via Facebook: s7vnth).

6. Joseph actually checked the stability of his home - it turned out that the house easily endures even the extreme conditions of the harsh Canadian winter when the temperature outside the window drops to -42 degrees Celsius. (Photo: Japhet Alvarez / Via Facebook: s7vnth).

7. Despite the fact that Joseph lived happily in his house for 2 years, he recently put it up for sale. For C$58,000 plus shipping, Joseph is ready to deliver the house to his lucky buyer anywhere in the US and Canada that is accessible by road. (Photo: Japhet Alvarez / Via Facebook: s7vnth).

8. Now Joseph promotes the idea of a "simple life" among young people. He works with schools in his area to give young people who want to simplify their lifestyle the knowledge and tools to build sustainable and self-sufficient homes. “It's a very, very simple life,” says Dupuis, “forget about obligations and mortgages—it's about community. This is the most important thing for me." (Photo: Japhet Alvarez / Via Facebook: s7vnth).
